Murchsion Falls are the most famous to foreign visitors with a spectacular to behold with the resounding roar through the rocks carved between Lake Albert and Lake Kyoga in the Albertine region on the White Nile. The 43 metre high and 7 meters wide Waterfalls share their name with the Murchison Falls National Park that is located in the northwestern part of Uganda. The falls have tumbled into the Victoria Nile around the rocks and have several bird species that live around it making it a generally good destination for both bird watchers and other water related sport activities. You can access the falls through the National park that has several lodges within and outside the park.
Not only is Murchison Falls famous for it’s height which is just 40m but also for it’s power. The Nile explodes violently through a narrow 6m gorge and upstream, the Victoria Nile hurtles through the rift’s hinterland down an explosive 80km of rapids that rafters consider one of the world’s scariest sections of white water, but provide a unique exhilarating experience. However, the most dramatic and interesting view of the water fall is found at top of the falls where the sight and sound of the Nile crashing through the 6m wide chasm is an unforgettable on the senses of the tourist.
